Christianspeak - "a God"
Doxoblogy: Evangelical Jargon
I decided to start a series here. I will post odd things that Christians say with an emphasis on that which just isn't right. My first entry is below:
"We serve a God who is holy and undefiled by sin"
"You are a God who searches the minds and hearts of man"
"This is a God who ______________ (fill in the blank)"
Does anyone else hear this kind of talk from Christians when praying or teaching? Since when is our Lord "a" God? I know we mean it with a capital "G" ... but ... isn't using the indefinite article all wrong ... when referring to THE Creator?
I think we should say "the" God when we talk about HIM.
